Before we start, let us introduce ourselves. He's Jon, she's Jac, nice to meet you!
What the heck is Doxa?
Doxa (pronounced dox'-ah) is the ancient Greek word for Glory. We believe that anything we do creatively, or ordinarily, in our lives has the potential to Glorify our God. That includes celebrating marriage, serving you as a couple, taking great pictures, and working together as a married couple ourselves.
What are your prices?
We like to keep it simple and see-through, so we've got one package. It's $4,000. There’s no hidden costs like travel, accommodation or editing (unless we’re travelling out of the state, can you book your wedding in Iceland? Please…)
Our all inclusive package includes;
3hrs Preparations with both Bride and Groom
Session with full Bridal party, and some time with just Bride and Groom.
All travel + accommodation including scouting prior, anywhere in Tassie.
This usually equates to about 10hours on your wedding day
You’ll get - 2x photographers, 600ish colour corrected and edited images, help with timeline scheduling in the lead up, time/people management on the day, unlimited communication including brainstorming ideas or vendors, vent sessions if needed and any and all support we can offer.
How do we book?
First thing you need to know is that we don't make a habit of booking more than 12-14mths in advance. We understand that this is pretty annoying for some of you ultra-organised folk, but we have a young family and only plan our working lives about a year in advance and have no clue what life will hold 2-3 years from now.
Second thing is we don't book every wedding that comes through. Weekends with our kids are precious to us. We only have a select few weekends that we fill each year - about 20 - so we want to make sure that we can do the best job we possibly can with those weddings. It means that we need to make sure that we are the right fit for YOUR day. We are not everyone's cup of tea, but we want to be YOUR cup of tea, or coffee, we like both :)
Third thing is that we don't hold dates. We catch up with every couple before we book (whether its face to face or Skype) This is mainly to give us a chance to put faces to the names, but also because we respect that your wedding is a super personal thing and we want to get to know you as best we can before we spend the day with you. So, once you've met us and you decide that you like us, we give you a week to read and sign the documents provided, and deposit the non-refundable retainer. If you are tardy with any of this, unfortunately your spot may be given to someone else.
Fourth thing, we'd love you to read "the Doxument" before you sign that contract. It's full of handy tips and tricks for your day, but the main thing it does is allow you to understand how we work with each other and also with you. We believe that weddings are sacred and we want to make sure that we can serve you and help you have the best day possible, but also be 100% authentic to who we are as artists. This is where the balance and the magic is. The perfect match :)
Do we get both photographers?
You sure do! We’re a team, both having strengths that make what we do possible. Two sets of eyes (and cameras) makes for more opportunity for beautiful shots!
Do you do LGBTIQ+ weddings?
Abso-freaking-lutely. We feel a little sad that we even need this question listed, but unfortunately people often see that we are Christian and assume that we follow the stereotype. We love Jesus, and that means we love to love everyone. We want to use our gifts to be able to bless you and give you tangible memories that we hope will last a lifetime.
How are our images delivered?
We use a great service called CloudSpot. We upload your photos into a private online gallery for you to see in all their glory! From there you can "Like" your favourites, share them on social media, or just download the whole lot to peruse at your leisure. It's very handy for sharing with family and friends!
Do you offer engagement/pre-wedding shoots?
We sure do! And we highly recommend booking one for several reasons. Firstly, you’ll get a selection of stunning images that you can use to SHOUT TO THE WORLD that you’re getting married or simply in love! It’s also a great chance for us to work together before your big day. We’ll teach you how to feel comfortable in front of the camera. Sessions are $500 if you've booked us for your wedding day, $750 if you haven't.
Can we meet you for coffee?
We thought you’d never ask! We love both Coffee, even more so when it’s with a couple planning their big adventure. Hit up the contact form below, drop us a line and we’ll organise a time, as always it's our shout!
